Adax has launched the PacketAMC (PktAMC) which uses of the embedded services of the Cavium family of multi-core processors.

PktAMC handles front-end processing of basic layer 2 switching as well as hardware acceleration for intelligent networking, control plane, security, quality of service and wireless applications.

This allows highly available, high-performance carrier grade transport from the edge to core networks to be delivered over the PktAMC’s four 1Gigabit Ethernet connections.

The PktAMC can also be combined with the AdaxPacketRunner (APR), meaning that front-end processing of basic layer 2 switching is handled by the PktAMC, with advanced layer two switching and routing, MPLS-TP, PBB-TE, high availability and management taking place on the APR.
